Sin City? I was guilty of Vivaing Las Vegas once a month my senior year of college. It’s a quick road trip from L.A. or a cheap flight, and thus one of those places that just kind of happens — again and again.

With renovated hotel parties such as Drais and Michelin Star restaurants such as the sophisticated Twist by Pierre Gagnaire at the Mandarin Oriental serving five star meals overlooking the Vegas strip (pictured) (I recommend the mushroom spelt risotto), Vegas is the crossing point of cocktails, cuisine, and concerts.

Imagine every adrenaline sport — skydiving, bungee jumping, jet-packing, hang gliding, swimming with sharks — I’ve done it all, so when I say that something is going to be the thrill of your life, I am not kidding.
